“We consider Astra Niedra to be an outstanding teacher, trainer and facilitator of the Voice Dialogue process”
-Hal Stone PhD and Sidra Stone PhD, Founders of Voice Dialogue

What is Voice Dialogue?

Developed by pioneering psychologists Dr Hal Stone and Dr Sidra Stone, Voice Dialogue is a method for giving voice to our various selves – also referred to as ‘inner selves’, ‘parts’ and ‘energy patterns’, and include archetypes. 

The process of connecting with and directly dialoguing with our selves allows us to realise which parts of ourselves we've become identified with and which parts we've rejected.

Through the dialogue process we learn why particular selves are dominant and why we've had to disown other selves.

As we do this we begin to separate from those selves that have over time become who we are and we develop the ability to access our previously rejected parts and to include them in our lives.

Hal and Sidra Stone also developed the theory underpinning Voice Dialogue, known as The Psychology of Selves.

Your selves might include a Knowledge Seeker, Pleaser, Responsible Parent, Rational Mind, Inner Critic, Perfectionist, Vulnerable Child, Playful Child, Rebel, Spiritual Self, Lazy Self, Adventurer, Romantic or any other self you can imagine.

Voice Dialogue Inner selves examples

When you start to recognise the selves operating in your own personality, you have an opportunity to experience real freedom. Because when you become conscious of a self, you also become conscious that you are not entirely that self. This opens the door to new perceptions, choices and experiences.

And when you see how your selves influence your relationships, then you can solve all kinds of relationship and parenting problems, allowing you to feel more joy, connection and growth in your life and relationships.

This work is deeply transformative, and can be used together with any other modality or practice that promotes self-awareness and consciousness.

      Hi Coly – to be added to the mail list you will need to fill in the subscription form on my site (the form appears on most pages). I’m unable to add you manually because it is an automated process.
      Thank you,

  2. Hello,
    Your site was recommended to me by a friend who works with Voice Dialogue an I am interested in learning more. I signed up for your free download, but did not receive an email confirmation. My experience with email confirmations is that they usually are almost “automatic,” in that they happen almost instantaneously after signing up. I just wondered if there’s a problem from my end, or maybe yours.
    Many thanks for your response.

      Hi Judy – can you remember which form, on which page, you signed up on? That would make it easier to check if there’s a mistake in the settings for that type of form.

    1. Author

      Hi Judy – I’ve tested the form and it works for me, and I’m getting notifications daily that other people are downloading the ebook, so I don’t know what the problem might be. You should receive a ‘Confirm your request’ email as soon as you submit the form. Maybe check your junk and spam folders in case that’s where it’s going?

  3. Wow Astra. You made some kind of magic happen! I completed the form again, immediately got an email confirmation, confirmed on your site and voila!! the ebook arrived.
    Thank you so much. Who knows what happened previously, but something changed and we’re connected. I look forward to reading the book and to your newsletters.
    Many thanks,

    That’s great! I hope you enjoy the ebook. There’s also plenty of information throughout my website. I hope you gain something of value from it all.
    Kind regards,

  5. Astra,

    Thank you for the writing and information you’ve created and shared. It’s come at a time when I most need it. I look forward to learning more over time as I read more and hope to heal. It wasn’t until I shut down social media that I began to truly understand how empty I’ve become.

    In any case. Thank you.

  6. Hi Astra,
    Do you offer VD sessions on a 1 on 1 basis? I am interested in have a session to help with some areas in my live.

    I am away of VD and have used it within my own life to a certain point however I need some more support to dig a bit deeper.

    Thank you for your consideration.

      Hi Carmel – sorry for taking so long to reply. At the moment I’m not seeing any clients but might start up again this year. I can let you know when I do. In the meantime, there’s a list of facilitators worldwide here: https://www.voicedialogueinternational.com/resources-index.htm. I’d suggest going through some of the profiles to see who you might like to work with. Many facilitators now offer sessions online so you can work with someone from just about anywhere.

      All the best and kind regards,
